I saw the hummingbird this morning at 6:50am. It has
been seen every day since last Thursday; about 25
others have seen it as well. Although it is still feeding
on the sage and salvia, it is now feeding on the
hummingbird feeder in the front yard more often.
It seems to be feeding at about 1 hour intervals and is
hard to find between feedings, although it sometimes
perches in the open between feedings. It seems to be
easier to see in the mornings, although that may
change when it freezes tomorrow night.
We will be in Texas from November 20 - 29, but have
alerted neighbors that birdwatchers will be visiting our
yard to look at the bird. Our neighbors have also
agreed to keep the hummingbird feeders filled.
Susan Campbell has asked to band the bird next
weekend. I will ask her to come either on Sunday, Nov
21 or the next weekend, so everyone can see it before
it's banded (in case it leaves after being banded).
Anyway, if you want to come see it. Walk up on the
front porch and look for it at the feeder, the blooming
plants, or in the juniper tree.
I won't be posting a lot more messages about this
bird, sorry for many I have already posted.
